MacBook Air :: How Long Should It Take To Shut Down

Jul 1, 2014

Just curious to what other users are experiencing.  How long does it take to shut down your computer (for those that are on OS X Mavericks)?  I purchased a Macbook Air 11-inch, 2014 last week and noticed it's taking about 12-14 seconds to completely shut down the computer. Just wanted to gauge if my experience is "normal" or something I need to resolve.

Mac Pro :: HD Spinning While Sleep - Shut Down Taking Long Time?

Mar 24, 2008

I recently did a clean install of Leopard on a brand new hard drive for my Late '06 Mac Pro. I currently have all updates installed, and the system is running very fast and very stable. But! I've been experiencing two problems over the week I've had Leopard installed, and I would just like to know if other MP users are sharing these as well...

1. Half the time I wake the computer from sleep, the fans blast off for about 10 seconds before the desktop is shown. Sometimes when the computer goes to sleep, via Energy Saver, my hard drives keep spinning.
2. Shut down takes an excruciatingly long time. My typical shut down lasts around a minute to a minute and a half.

I've read around and have seen a few problems like this, but I want to know if there are a larger majority of people with a Mac Pro who are experiencing either of these in Leopard. It's not such a nuisance, being I don't have to wait for shut down and I can wait around a few seconds when waking up the computer. Though, here's to hoping 10.5.3 or a firmware update can fix these two issues!

Mac Pro :: System Takes Long Shut Down Time / Tried Resetting The PRAM

Aug 7, 2009

Man, what's up with this? Shut down on my early 2008 MacPro (10.5.7) takes forever! I've tried resetting the PRAM and it did this with earlier versions of Leopard as well. I've reinstalled the OS twice, changed hard drives and wish I could fix this.

Intel Mac :: Shut-downs And Restarts And Then A Long Report Appears?

Apr 15, 2012

I have a mid-2011 IMac running Lion 10.7.3. From the time I got it, last Sept., it has said it has a problem and has to shut-down and restart. Then a long report appears with all the codes and apps. listed to be sent to Apple.This was first happening ever 3-4 wee, then every 2-3 weeks, and lately I had 2 in one day. I always add in the comments section that I would like to know what is going on, but never get any feedback,  can't read the code well enough, but CPU 2 seems to show up. aI talked to Applecare last week and got a problem munber. The rep. says those reports are used by tech services to see what changes to make, and not tied to individual machines. I am concerned that I may have a lemon that will give out after my Applecare expires. I'm not anxious for a replacement or having the screen pulled to get inside to repair it. I've got it set up too well to risk it.

MacBook Air :: How Long Does Your AIR Last While Sleeping?

Jun 23, 2008

I am a new MBA Owner, not even a week only yet but like everyone I'm confused how I lived before without this thing, it goes everywhere with me! My post pertains to power management. I have been taking the AIR with me everywhere but just closing the lid and stowing it instead of turning the machine off. My question is how long will the AIR last in Standby mode? I understand it depends on how much you use it on a daily basis but do some users charge it in the morning and just pop it open throughout the day like a cell phone? Do some users actually turn the machine off each time?

MacBook Air :: How Long Should Battery Last

Feb 13, 2009

im just curious (and maybe a slight bit worried) about how long my macbook air should last on a full battery. it seems like it gets less and less all the time. its not my primarily used cmputer (i use my iMac mostly) but i still use my MBA most days whether it be in bed or on my travels to friends' houses etc.

when i do use it ive usually got a socket handy so its always charging and when its in the house not being used, its pretty much always on charge which means the battery running out isnt a big deal but the few times i actually don't have the MBA on charge it seems to run out pretty quickly. i do tend to run a lot of programs, however.

MacBook Pro :: How Long Before SSD Is Standard

Aug 5, 2009

We're all used to the idea of technology, memory, price, and TIME. But how long do you think before you can get a 512 GB SSD for around $200? I'm guessing 2 years, and by that time SSDs will become standard and everyone will be asking around that time what could possibly make Hard drives faster. It would even be perfect to replace your old hard drive instead of buying a new computer, just back up your data and re-install the OS and you practically have a brand new computer. And of course by that time there will be SSDs that surpass the current Intel ones.

MacBook Pro :: How Long Does The Battery Last For A Unibody

Sep 11, 2009

I have a 15" MBP (2.66Ghz, late 2008), I usually don't have WiFi turned off, so I just wanted to know how long does it usually last with WiFi off and semi-high brightness setting for the display. The only activity is typing in Word and maybe a few non intensive Photoshop stuff.

I'd like to get an estimate because I have no power adapters where I'll be using it.

MacBook Pro :: How Long Does 13" Battery Last

Apr 23, 2010

Mine only lasted 2hrs 30min on full charge (4th cycle. 4 day old), did the calibration and then it's now lasting about 4 hours. (it showed 7 hours in the beginning but number changed quickly as I opened Safari and browse online)

10 Hours? Come on Steve! Even with the dimmest light, bluetooth off, wireless off, no application running i've never seen 10 hours on MBP13". Not even 9 nor 8.

And I found this article.
"Macworld's 13"MBP Review: The 10-Hour Battery Lasts Four Hours"
At least the author was playing Quicktime Nothing much and 4 hours. (Factory defect?)

MacBook Air :: How Long Does It Take To Repair MBA Hinges

Jun 30, 2010

I dropped my MBA rev. A last week (jun 23rd) to the Michigan Ave Apple Store.

I keep checking the online repair status page, it only shows "repair in progress" since then.

More interestingly I dropped my MBA after they ordered and got the replacement parts for me.

Originally I was thinking they would fix it in 15-20min, but has been 7 days and still in progress.

I called store, but there is no live-person answering repair calls, it does give exact same information as the web-page.

I don't want to drive there if it is not fixed, but I need my computer for my work.

MacBook Pro :: 60W MagSafe - What To Do With Long Cord

Aug 11, 2010

The website says this: to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage. I'm lost on the above. I just bunch it together and put it in the side pocket of my laptop case. What are they talking about in the above? What gets wrapped around what? The cord is very long and I've read reviews of how happy users are that they no longer trip over it.

I'm currently running my mac with an SSD in place of my original HDD and my HDD in place of my optical drive.

Here is the shutdown system log for the process which is taking a long time.

MacBook :: It Takes Long To Go To Sleep

May 30, 2012

My macbook used to take about 5 seconds or less to go to sleep when I would manually put it to sleep. It now takes about a minute for it to go to sleep. I read on a forum that you may have a job stuck in the printer que. This is not my problem. I've tried to start in safe mode and it's still not fixed. I've also checked the permissions and repaired those.

MacBook Air :: How Long Will NAND Flash Memory Last

Oct 26, 2010

Was looking to buy a new laptop to replace dying old XP Dell and compliment iMac. Was thinking of a 13" Macbook Pro but have got interested and excited by this new Air. Its the instant on and portability that appeals........ but on this forums in places and elsewhere on internet (even Wikipaedia) there appears to be concerned that NAND flash memory has a definite life.... so many 1s and 0s changing before it slows right down.

Is this right... how long will it be.... can it be refreshed by copying stuff, doing something and then loading back up.... or has it to be replaced. The iFixit teardown suggests it is replaceable but at what cost. ie don't want to buy one only for the memory to give up the ghost in a year or two.

MacBook Air :: External Battery For Long Flights?

Feb 21, 2008

What do you think about this battery from Batterygeek?

130 Wh
16 or 19 volts output
1.7 lbs

This should give 4.5 times the normal operating time. Should be possible to watch demanding movies for about 7 hours, or do less demanding things for 18 hours.

I'm not sure if the voltage is too high or within limits. The Air magsafe seems to output 14.5 volts.
